Various of S-21 (also known as "Tuol Sleng"), the secret holding centre in Phnom Penh where alleged enemies of the Khmer Rouge were first tortured then killed - It is now museum dedicated to preserving the memory of what happened under the Khmer Rouge STORYLINE A notorious Khmer Rouge prison chief was taken to the Cambodian genocide tribunal headquarters on Tuesday to be questioned by judges investigating crimes committed during the regime's rule in late 1970s, an official said. Kaing Khek Iev, also known as Duch, who headed the former Khmer Rouge prison S-21 in Phnom Penh - became the first suspect to be questioned by judges of the UN-backed tribunal, said a tribunal spokesman. "Kaing Khek Iev, known as Duch, was brought to the Extraordinary Chambers in the Courts of Cambodia on Tuesday morning for initial questioning by the co-investigating judges," Reach Sombat, a spokesman for the Genocide Tribunal told AP Television. "He will be interviewed by the co-investigating judges and the co-investigating judges will issue a press statement on Wednesday," Sombat said. The prison was a virtual slaughterhouse where suspected enemies of the ultra-communists were brutally tortured before being taken out to killing fields near the city. Officials said Duch was driven in a car escorted by Cambodian government security forces and arrived at the tribunal headquarters shortly after 6:10 a.m. (23:10 GMT). He was taken from a military prison, where he has been detained since 1999. Kaing Khek Iev, 62, is among five ex-Khmer Rouge leaders the tribunal's prosecutors have submitted to the co-investigating judges for further investigation. Some 16,000 people were imprisoned at S-21, now the Tuol Sleng Genocide Museum. Only about a dozen of them are thought to have survived when the Khmer Rouge regime was overthrown by a Vietnamese invasion in 1979. Nic Dunlop, author of the book "The Lost Executioner" about the Khmer Rouge, said that there is "very little doubt" that Duch was "responsible for a whole range of abuses from torture to executions to not only carrying out orders from above that were given to him but also to act on his own initiative, with his own authority." Some 1.7 (m) million people died from hunger, disease, overwork and execution as a result of the radical policies of the Khmer Rouge. On July 18, prosecutors submitted to the investigating judges the cases of five former Khmer Rouge leaders they recommend stand trial. The prosecutors did not reveal the identity of the five suspects, citing confidentiality rule.

Close-up of gem being examined in man's hand STORYLINE: Campaigning for national elections has evoked Cambodia's grim past in jungle town of Pailin, once a stronghold of the genocidal Khmer Rouge (KR) regime, where two former guerrillas are locked in a battle over ballots. Former Khmer Rouge cadres Ven Dara and Y Chhean are front-runners in a race for a single seat in parliament to represent Pailin, a town of 40-thousand people with 22,394 eligible voters. The Sam Rainsy Party (SRP) and the ruling Cambodian People's Party (CPP) are locked in a tough contest for the lone seat in the province, home of many of the former Khmer Rouge. What divides the candidates is the issue of the proposed United Nations-assisted genocide tribunal for surviving Khmer Rouge leaders. Sam Rainsy and his party's candidate, Ven Dara, would like to see many here go on trial in a joint Cambodian-United Nations atrocities tribunal. Ven Dara's uncle, Ta Mok, was a former KR military commander and was arrested in 1999 - becoming one of only two Khmer Rouge officers in prison waiting to be brought before the proposed tribunal. Ven believes that if her uncle faces the tribunal, then all former surviving KR leaders should also stand trial. However, the CPP, led by Prime Minister Hun Sen, and its candidate Y Chhean - a former Pol Pot bodyguard - want a limited number tried. This issue has made the political race in the western enclave interesting. The SRP currently holds the legislative seat in the area after victory in the 1998 election. However, former Pol Pot bodyguard Y Chhean - recruited by the CPP - is the standing provincial governor. Sam Rainsy campaigned in Pailin recently and received a huge turnout, but his supporters still believe the machine of CPP and Y Chhean will steal the election. At the centre of the political debate are three former Khmer Rouge leaders - seen recently attending a funeral for Pol Pot's first wife Khieu Ponnary. All could face trial for the misdeeds of the regime that is estimated to have caused the death of 1.7 (m) million Cambodians from starvation, disease, overwork and execution during its 1975-79 rule. None of the group's leaders has faced justice for the atrocities. Khieu Samphan was the nominal head of state and author of much of the ultra-communist philosophy of the Khmer Rouge. Nuon Chea was head of the legislature, and Ieng Sary was the foreign minister. All three made a deal for clemency with the current government after agreeing to have their supporters lay down their arms not long after the 1998 election. Hun Sen was a Khmer Rouge cadre himself before defecting and gaining political power after the 1979 invasion by Vietnam ended the rule of the Pol Pot regime. The pact to create a tribunal, signed by Cambodia and the United Nations last month, still has to be ratified by the Cambodian assembly. International and Cambodian judges will determine who will go before the court. Pailin is known as the centre of the Cambodian gem industry, and its riches could benefit the winning political parties both in terms of personal wealth as well as financing political ambitions. Its 22-thousand plus voters will go to the polls on Sunday. Voters throughout Cambodia will elect a 123-seat National Assembly, from which a new government will be formed.

Genocide survivors urge compassion for migrants ahead of Holocaust Memorial Day
Holocaust and genocide survivors who fled their homelands to escape persecution have urged Britons to show the same compassion afforded to them to the thousands of people crossing the English Channel in search of sanctuary. Vera Schaufeld, who left what is now the Czech Republic on Sir Nicholas Winton’s Kindertransport in 1939, said being able to find sanctuary in Bury St Edmunds as a nine-year-old effectively saved her life. And El Sadiq Manees, who arrived in the UK in 2015 having secretly boarded a cross-continental freight train after escaping war-torn Sudan, asked people to better understand the life-or-death decisions made by those who choose to leave. It comes ahead of Holocaust Memorial Day, on Thursday, when people will be asked to reflect upon the six million Jews murdered during the Holocaust, and on genocides that followed in Cambodia, Rwanda, Bosnia and Darfur.

But I don't really know who they are because I was born after the Pol Pot regime." 23. Shot of children playing at the park STORYLINE: Several former Khmer Rouge leaders in Cambodia are quietly hoping that possible war crime tribunals will never come to pass, as they fade into their old age. While Kaing Kek Ieu, whose "revolutionary" name was Duch, says from jail that he is ready to defend himself, the rest of the surviving leadership are keeping a low profile, hoping that the nation and the international community will lose interest in them. Another former KR leader, Ta Mok, also remains jailed, although uncommunicative. Pol Pot, considered the head man during the Khmer Rouge time, died several years ago. But leng Sary, Khieu Samphan and Nuon Chea, all considered top decision-makers during the murderous regime, remain at large - living quietly in the western town of Pailin. War crimes activists and local and international journalists have tried to keep the spotlight on these men, an endeavour they resent and wish to stop. The current government led by Hun Sen, himself a former Khmer Rouge comrade, seems to be taking small steps to encourage the public to put the past behind them. As part of this process, the Tuol Sleng museum, set up by the liberating Vietnamese to commemorate the torture of Cambodians by the Khmer Rouge, has been scaled down in recent months. And while laws have been drafted to provide rules for a tribunal, a dispute with the United Nations (UN) threatens to neuter or even avoid any trials. Last August King Sihanouk signed a law enabling the establishment of a UN-assisted genocide tribunal. But some suspect that even the king hopes the whole plan can be cancelled, embarrassed over what some say was his capitulation with the Khmer Rouge when they were in power, despite his protests to the contrary. Ieng Thanith, Ieng Sary's wife and herself a player during the Khmer Rouge time, says that other world powers would be embarrassed by a tribunal. The US sided with the Khmer Rouge after the Vietnamese invasion that installed Hun Sen and eventually led to UN-sponsored free elections. Ieng Sary received an amnesty after making a deal with the government in the mid-'90's. It's unclear whether that agreement could be breached to include him in the tribunal. Khieu Samphan and Nuon Chea appear more vulnerable, despite their efforts to come in from the cold in 1998. Now they both claim to be tired old men who just want to be left alone with their families. But their expression of desire to fade away in peace, designed to gain sympathy from the international community, will not wash with Cambodians at home - especially among those born before 1975 who remember the KR regime. Those who survived want justice. However, with more than half the population under 30 years of age, the regime's brutality is starting to fade from the collective memory. In 2002, the question is whether the victims will be able to push a trial into place before the former KR leaders disappear from the landscape permanently. More than two (m) million Cambodians are thought to have been executed, or died from disease or starvation during the Khmer Rouge reign. Many were tortured, having been accused of befriending the Western non-communists within the country or the Vietnamese. Others fell victim to the Khmer Rouge's disastrous rural relocation scheme in which cities were emptied in order to set up an agrarian society - which later failed to meet the nations food needs.

STORYLINE: As the momentum wanes for holding a United Nations-sponsored Khmer Rouge genocide trial, two of the barbaric regime's most prominent leaders live a life of freedom but boredom, playing with grandchildren and listening to the radio. In rare interviews, Nuon Chea and Khieu Samphan have told The Associated Press that they expect to spend their final years in Pailin, a nondescript town close to the Thai border. Nuon Chea, 76, is the top surviving Khmer Rouge commander. He helped Pol Pot seize control of Cambodia's communist movement in the 1950s and '60s and then became the movement's chief political ideologue. Khieu Samphan, 70, was the nominal leader of the Khmer Rouge and its best known public face. The two men now describe themselves as poor and isolated. They agreed to the interviews on the condition that they wouldn't be asked about the past or their roles in the 1975-79 Khmer Rouge regime led by Pol Pot. The Khmer Rouge are blamed for the deaths of at least 1.7 million Cambodians, killed by disease or overwork, starved or executed in their attempt to create an agrarian utopia. The 45-minute interviews took place separately on consecutive days this month at their isolated and modest concrete and wooden homes, located less than 30 metres (yards) apart. A long-standing plan to create a U.N.-assisted Cambodian tribunal to bring surviving Khmer Rouge leaders to justice appears to have unraveled. The world body pulled out of the project in February, saying it cannot rely on the Cambodian government to create a tribunal of international standards. It wants changes to laws governing the tribunal but Cambodia has refused, citing its sovereignty. Many critics say the government is deliberately thwarting the tribunal because many members of Prime Minister Hun Sen's government were Khmer Rouge cadres. Hun Sen himself was a member until he deserted in 1977 and returned later with the invading Vietnamese army that ousted the Khmer Rouge. No Khmer Rouge member has ever been convicted for the 1970s atrocities. Only two top officials, Ta Mok and Kaing Khek Iev, are in jail after being seized by government forces in the waning days of the Khmer Rouge guerrilla war. The two, along with Nuon Chea, Khieu Samphan and former Foreign Minister Ieng Sary, would likely be among the chief defendants in any future tribunal.

Wide of convoy carrying Duch, leaving the killing fields to return him to detention STORYLINE: The former head of a notorious Khmer Rouge torture centre was moved to tears on Tuesday when he was taken by Cambodia's genocide tribunal to one of the country's notorious "killing fields" to which he is accused of sending thousands of people to their deaths, an official said. Kaing Guek Eav, also known as Duch, has been charged with crimes against humanity for his role three decades ago as commandant of the Khmer Rouge's notorious S-21 prison. He was taken into custody by the UN-assisted tribunal last year pending trial. An estimated 1.7 (m) million people died during the 1975-79 communist Khmer Rouge regime, which cut off contact with the outside world and forced the entire population into agricultural collectives, leading to starvation and disease. The regime tortured and executed untold thousands of people. Duch, 65, is one of five former high-ranking Khmer Rouge officials being held for trial by the joint UN-Cambodian tribunal established in 2006 to finally bring aging top Khmer Rouge leaders to justice. Tuesday's so-called re-enactment, closed to the public and media, was part of an investigative process that involves taking the accused to the crime scene to be questioned about what happened in the past. Duch was especially moved when he stood before a tree with a sign describing how executioners disposed of their child victims by bashing their heads against its trunk, the spokesman said. "We could see that when he saw the tree trunk, which he said the children were smashed into the tree trunk, at the end of the conversation he bent his leg and he worshipped, he prayed, he saluted to the tree," said Reach Sambath, a tribunal spokesman. There are several similar displays among the shallow graves that contain skeletal remains and ragged clothes. Some 16-thousand men, women and children who had been held at S-21 were killed and buried at Choeung Ek, now a memorial site that is a popular tourist attraction. At the end of the tour, Duch clasped his hands together in prayer and cried again in front of a glass-fronted stupa, or Buddhist reliquary, crammed with 8,985 skulls, some bearing clear evidence of death by hammers, hoes, bamboo sticks and bullets, Sambath said. Duch had been driven in a heavily guarded convoy from the tribunal's detention centre to Choeung Ek, about 10 kilometres (6 miles) south of Phnom Penh. About 80 people, including judges, prosecutors, lawyers, representatives of the victims and witnesses, were on hand for the re-enactment, Reach Sambath said. Among the witnesses were four former staff members of S-21, he said. Duch is scheduled to visit S-21, now the Tuol Sleng genocide museum, on Wednesday. Of the thousands jailed there during the Khmer Rouge reign of terror, only 14 are believed to have survived. The long-delayed genocide trials may start later this year. Many fear the group's surviving leaders could die before being brought to justice. The movement's chief, Pol Pot, died in 1998. One of Duch's fellow defendants, former Khmer Rouge Foreign Minister Ieng Sary, was hospitalised last week with persistent urinary tract problems, Reach Sambath said on Monday.
